constitution all laws he united states of american against all enemies, foreign and domestic. and we pledged to perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required when i recited this pledge last week, i cannot imagine that work of national importance by civilians would be required here in boston so soon. but now, all of us need to take up this pledge. we all have service to perform and indeed, we are all move by the thousands of people who stepped forward in a moment of tragedy and confusion to serve. i want to salute everyone who ran toward the victims, despite risk to themselves. everyone who gave blood, everyone who volunteered shelter for stranded runners, i want to salute the members of law enforcement who are protecting us as we speak and to thank the people around the world who are sending messages of hope and solidarity. before us, all the civilian work of national and international interest, no one has to take a a formal oath. we know instinctively that we stise to the od act because of our common humanity. that is what makes us erans. one nation under god, a
. i want to congratulate and thank all of the law enforcement authorities for the extraordinary job that they have been doing on behalf of our citizens. in the past few days, we have seen the best and the worst of human behavior. it is the best that all of us really want to focus on. like everyone, we are going to keep watching. we will await word from the law enforcement officers before commenting further. it's a huge easure fore and an important moment to welcome one of our most important partners, our close neighbor and our friend, and i want to welcome my friend, the secretary. one of the first calls i made when i became secretary of state was to josé. we share an alma mater together. he was a graduate student, i was an undergraduate. whatever we don't say right today, you can blame it on them. we obviously share much much more than alma mater. both of us are privileged to represent our extraordinary countries. we share a remarkable friendship and very strong partnership that is growing stronger all the time. for generations we have lived side-by-side as families and neighbors,
. that got law enforcement zeroing on the two brothers. bill: mike, we're trying to piece this together as best we can but what can you tell us about the reports that the fbi is questioning him today from his hospital bed? >> reporter: all of that goes back to a "usa today" report citing anonymous sources. the sourcing is not as tight as i would like but certainly a significant development. we know he has been sedated. he has a injury to his neck or jaw, a bullet wound to his neck or jaw that prevented him from communicating. 9 report says he was roused back to consciousness and providing things in writing and providing substantive answers to questions. we know from the information he is providing that indicates there is not a larger network and not a second wave of bombings to be feared, bill. bill: mike, thank you. we'll be back with you when there are more headlines from boston. mike leading our coverage there martha. martha: we are hearing the police chatter when police first spotted dzhokhar tsarnaev hiding in that covered boat. massachusetts state police released the stunning infr
are you learning? >> wolf, a law enforcement official told me today that authorities are preparing for a long and slow investigation here and it starts with pieces of the explosive devices scattered along an enormous crime scene. even before the dust started to settle, authorities were asking what kind of explosive device created this. the picture of the bombs now starting to emerge is that they were deadly but crude. a federal law enforcement official with knowledge of the boston bomb investigation tells cnn the bombs were hidden in bags inside a metal pressure cooker. a law enforcement source also told cnn that it's likely but not certain that a timing device was used to detonate the bomb. emergency room doctors said they believed the bombs contained bbs and nails intended by the bomber to kill or maim as many people as possible. >> there were a variety of sharp objects that we found in their bodies, probably this bomb had multiple metallic fragments in them and we removed them. >> mike bouchard is a former top official with the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms. >> it cou
these photos of what remains of a pressure cooker which was used as the delivery device for the explosives. law enforcement sources tell nbc news the bombs were built to act like homemade ieds. sources tell nbc news the bombs included a battery pack and "the boston globe" reports investigators recovered a part of a circuit board at the scene. the bombs were packed with scha shrapnel. the bomb was not capable of creating a massive blast. instead, its main purpose was to maim and injure. photos obtained by whdh in boston showed the area where the bomb was left moments before and moments after the detonation. the fbi is looking at these photos and others like them for clues as to who placed the bombs and when. now there is precedent for devices like these. in 2004, the fbi sent out a memo on the use of homemade pressure cooker bombs. al qaeda's online magazine gave instructions for making them just last month and in the 2010 attempted attack on times square, one of the devices found included a pressure cooker and 125 firecrackers. meanwhile, the search of an apartment belonging to a foreign studen
me give you. mike brooks is our law enforcement analyst, he is being told that senator wicker now has protective detail, meaning he has security around him, because of the fact that he received this letter which was tested positive for the poison ricin. let me just go back and tell you what we learned, and that is that what happened was this envelope came addressed to senator wicker, it tested once positive for riciricin, they te it two more times, so three times positive for ricin, so as we speak, this envelope has been sent to a facility in suburban washington, in maryland to get yet another test on ricin. this is something that we learned very quickly, actually as and even before most u.s. senators learned, they were briefed not too long ago earlier this evening from the senator sergeant at arms and they were told that this certainly is essentially very harmful, but they were also calmed a bit by reminding them that this is the reason why they have a facility that's offsite where they sort your mail, it doesn't come directly to their offices. >> it's offsite because of the anthrax
to the apartments in revere. and federal law enforcement, this hour, an indicator he may not be of great investigative e was here on a student visa and didn't provide any hits on a phone terrorist watch list. >> megyn: thank you. >> reporter: you're welcome. >> megyn: tiny pieces of shrapnel may provide biggest clues in the hint for the boston bomber, not long after the blast we heard another piece of key evidence would be the video of the explosions themselves, including the white smoke seen rising after the explosion, that tells us something. experts say it suggests that local products and not military grade explosives were likely used. also, the large pieces of the metal flying, we spot-shadowed them here and we now believe pressure cookers were used to build these bombs and the devices may have been placed in black duffle bags and possibly put on the ground or in the trash cans. my next guest is one of the foremost explosives experts. first working on an army-- as an army bomb disposal technician and special agent with the fbi, here you see some of the investigations in which he too
surveillance by law enforcement officers. as you mentioned he was intubated and sedated with serious injuries. as the investigation continues the focus today is on what charges he will face and when. one week after two deadly bombs exploded in downtown boston, killing three and injuring 183 people, the only surviving suspect remains in serious condition at beth israel deaconess medical center. as federal prosecutors prepare to bring charges against him, law enforcement sources say dzhokhar tsarnaev is unable to talk after a gunshot wound to the neck. exactly when he suffered this injury is still unknown. >> this is a very complex investigation, and it's hard to say exactly how he received that injury. there was certainly a shoot-out in watertown. there were explosives thrown. so that's being looked into right now. it's hard to say exactly how it occurred. >> reporter: we're learning more about the tense moments right before tsarnaev's arrest. this aerial video shows infrared images of him hiding out on a boat in the backyard of a home in watertown. according to a law enforcement source close
. anderson. >> all right. don. appreciate that. bottom line there, he's communicating with law enforcement personnel via writing. we are getting new information about the wounded suspect. let's go to deborah. >> hi. i'm being told by sources being briefed on the investigation that the 19-year-old suspect is on a ventilator and heavily sedated. every several hours in the care of doctors, an interview team goes into the room to ask the suspect questions. now these questions are pretty much focused, according to my source, on public safety. for example, are there any other bombs? are there any other bomb stashes? are is there any other weapons? he has been been on a ventilator and he is restrained in part because they don't want him to rip the tube out of his throat. we've been hearing law enforcement has been communicating in writing, but what we do know is he is nodding. the responses he is giving are being given by nodding. there appears to be some sort of wound to his leg. it appears due to blood loss. he did have a wound to the back of his neck. it is not clear how that wound was inflict

questioning him since yesterday. there is some form of communication between law enforcement and the suspect we believe in writing. pamela brown is outside the hospital for us, she's joining us now. what is the latest on tsarnaev's condition? >> reporter: the latest is that he remains here at beth israel deaconess medical center in serious condition. he is still in the intensive care unit handcuffed to his bed 24/7 monitoring by law enforcement officers. we are told that he is intubated and sedated with a gunshot wound to the neck. so it appears that he is still pretty out of it. wolf. >> doctors are telling us that tsarnaev could put something -- could be getting something that's described as a sedation holiday. i know you've been checking with medical personnel over there. what does that mean? >> reporter: well, i've been talking with our medical correspondent elizabeth cohen and she tells me that essentially this means doctors can decrease the sedation for a few minutes to a few hour so is that doctors or authorities would be able to communicate with the patient. we've seen this before it
be communicating to law enforcement officials. and there are new questions about whether the fbi dropped the ball after being warned by the russians in 2011 about cz tsarnaev's older brother, tamer ly tamerlan. nick paton walsh is in dagestan, and we have joe johns in washington, but we began with pamela brown with the latest on the investigation. >>> after a week of terror, chaos and heartache, the city of boston is still recovering. there are signs that life is starting to return back to normal here. there is a sense of relief after the arrest of the suspect, 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev. now the focus is on what charges he will face and when. >> reporter: one week after two deadly bombings exploded in downtown boston killing three and injuring 183 people, the only surviving suspect remains in serious condition. as federal prosecutors prepare to bring charges against him, law enforcement sources say dzhokhar tsarnaev is unable to talk after a gunshot wound to the neck. exactly when he suffered this injury is still unknown. >> this is a complex investigation. and it's hard to say exactly how he
this apparently was going. earlier on your broadcast this evening, i was chastised a bit in the law enforcement community and were progressing as we moved along, but i wyou have to keep mind, as their looking for these clues, any single one of those clues could lead them immediately to a suspect. a thumbprint on the bomb that they're recreating down in quantico, any tip, any certain surveillance shot or even a photograph that somebody who was at the scene may have taken of their loved ones as they were snapping a picture near the finish line and now notice there is a guy in the background perhaps putting a black bag somewhere. that could be just the one tip that would solve this case. they have extensive manpower on it. there is no way they're getting frustrated this early in the game, but i will tell you, they are in a real urgent hunt to find this person and solve this crime. >> certainly the first 24 or 48 hours, so crucial in that. thanks to drew. let's talk about what authorities can learn from this new evidence. i want to bring in the former fbi assistant director tom fuentes, and don bar
learned? >> jake, federal law enforcement officials confirmed to cnn, now, that this was -- these were, in fact, pressure cooker explosive devices. it was explained to me that these pressure cooker devices necessarily include a circuit board, a timer, but they would not confirm that they had found pieces of those component pieces of the bombs, the circuit board or the timer. this is sort of unfortunate in a way. you remember we've been talking about the actual construction would help them understand who was likely behind the explosion -- the explosive devices. the problem is, these i'm told component pieces are commonly available. they're easily obtained. the construction, the design of such an explosive device using a pressure cooker is widely disseminated and known. so this won't be the kind of help that the feds were hoping to get from looking at the signature of the bomb. they thought this might help them discern whether it was a foreign or domestic group, a lone wolf, or a group behind it. also, they are talking about trying to quickly release a photo of the device. why? they tell
and the laws of the united states of america against all enemies, foreign and domestic. and we pledged to perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by law. when i recited this pledge last week, i could not imagine that work of national importance by civilians would be required here in boston so soon, but now all of us need to take up this pledge. we all have service to perform, and indeed we are all moved by the thousands of people who stepped forward in a moment of tragedy and confusion to serve. i want to salute everyone who ran towards the victim despite risk to themselves. everyone who gave blood, everyone who volunteered, shelter for stranded runners. i want to salute the members of law enforcement who are protecting us as we speak and to thank the people around the world who are sending messages of hope and solidarity. before us all the civilian work of national and even international interest. no one has to take a formal oath. we knew instinctively that we must rise to the occasion and act because of our common humanity. that is what makes us ame
. the oldest brother, tamerlan tsarnaev in-laws and wife are asking the public to please respect their privacy at this time. and as we know, tamerlan was the bombing suspect killed in a shoot-out with police. a statement issued outside the family's north king's town rhode island home rings, quote, our daughter has lost her husband today, the father of her child. we cannot begin to comprehend how this horrible tragedy occurred. in the aftermath of the horror, we know that we never really knew tamerlan tsarnaev. our hearts are sickened by the knowledge of the horror he inflicted. please respect our family's privacy at this difficult time. >> we are starting to get a clearer picture of who the suspects were and what they were doing before they began the reign of terror. >> the city of boston and the city of cambridge and watertown and many other communities can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that two perpetrators that caused so many pain and anguish are no longer a threat to our safety and communities. >> and with that, the state-wide manhunt was over. the teen the fbi described as suspect numb
them legally but only reason we say that is because massachusetts has very strict gun laws and in order to possess a gun you have to be licensed for it and there's no record according to the authorities that the older brother, who i think would be the only one who would qualify to have a gun license actually had one. so they seem to be in possession of them illegally but where they got them, how they got them, this is an important question and we're waiting to find that out and they are checking that out as well. >> in your reporting you also had the opportunity to e-mail with the man that police say was carjacked by the brothers. what is this person saying and did the conversation reveal any new light about the suspect's state of mind just hours before this manhunt came to an end? >> i asked him several questions and he chose to answer only one which was to sort out these conflicting details about whether they let him go or he escaped. he said i escaped. he described them as cautious but brutal. separately in a police investigation, he's the one who called 911 as soon as they let him o
is in custody. >> megyn: bill hemmer, thank you, friend. see you soon. law enforcement now pouring over images from the scene and you heard bill how they're asking anyone who was there to send them pictures. what you're about to see a one example of what authorities are looking at. you will he see a man cross the finish line and kiss his children and then you'll hear the first explosion and 12 seconds or so later you will hear the second blast. listen here. >> great job!. [explosion] >> we now know that three people were killed and just under 200 people were injured in those moments. the authorities will also be looking at this video where moments after the explosion, look, you see two large pieces more than two, but those two we highlighted for you, metal flying, we've spot-shadowed them here and pieces of evidence that they'll use to determine who may be behind the terrible event. coming up later in the show we're going through the video with one of the world's foremost explosives experts who has worked on nearly every major terror investigation in recent memory, including the 1983 bombing
continue to mobilize and deploy all appropriate law enforcement resources to protect our citizens and investigate and to respond to this attack. obviously, our first thoughts this morning are with the victims, their families, and the city of boston. we know that two explosions gravely wounded dozens of americans and took the lives of others including, an 8-year-old boy. this was a heinous and cowardly act and given what we now know about what took place, the fbi is investigating it as an act of terrorism. any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror. what we don't yet know, however, is who carried out this attack or why. whether it was planned and executed by a terrorist organization, foreign or domestic, or was the act of a malevolent individual. that's what we don't yet know. and clearly we're at the beginning of our investigation. it will take time to follow every lead and determine what happened. but we will find out. we will find whoever harmed our citizens and we will bring them to justice point we also know this. the american people refuse to
from a boston law enforcement source who says in addition to the pressure cooker, they say it's undeniable, they have a twisted top of a pressure cooker, about 6 liter capacity. they believe it's two identical devices or two similar devices, but i'm also told a partial circuit board recovered in the same area that also has been sent to quantico. and now this all goes off, we go through this after airplane crashes, they try to take every piece they can get, assemble it back together, try to recreate the bomb. they're hoping to find fingerprints, any kind of dna, something from the backpack. and if you can't get personal identification items like that, look for serial numbers, brand names, at least try to figure out where was the pressure cooker, where might the bag have been bought. >> are you getting a sense from your sources about where this investigation? they are still appealing for help in terms of getting more pictures out there. giving out a fair amount of information which is sometimes kind of rare. >> you can tell from the special agent in charge at the news conference
in a dark-colored bag or backpack. federal law enforcement sources tell cnn the devices were inside pressure cookers and they believe bbs and nails were part of the explosives. important to know that so far nobody has claimed responsibility. the toll of injured up to 183, three more have died, including 8-year-old martin richard, and krystle campbell. >>> president obama will travel to boston on thursday. now we go to chris cuomo live for us in boston. it seems here we are 24 hours more or later and nobody seems to have a real clue who has done this or why. >> reporter: that shouldn't be surprising, piers, these investigations take a very long time to develop, especially starting with being multifactorial, no group claiming responsibility. so much ground to canvas, this is going to be a difficult investigation. i think it's good news that the authorities said in their presser that they're in no rush. very often as we both know, haste makes waste when it comes to an investigation. this is about getting it right. >> that is true. i imagine there'll be some people in boston who will be concerne
to the perpetrators, we are learning more about just how the explosives were made. law enforcement officials familiar with the case say they appear to have consisted of an explosive and shrapnel backed inside a pressure cooker, probably triggered by some kind of timer. if that is the case, we have seen this before. one of the three devices used in the 2010 attack in times square incorporated a pressure cooker containing approximately 120 fire crackers. a soldier, nazir abdul, convicted last year of plotting an attack at ft. hood, texas, was using a bomb-making recipe from an al qaeda-linked online magazine that used a pressure cooker. in july of 2006, more than 130 died in a series of attacks on the mumbai transit system with pressure cooker explosives placed on the trains. the department of homeland security has warned of the potential terrorist use of pressure cookers saying "as a common cooking utensil, the pressure cooker is often overlooked when searching vehicles, residences, or merchandise crossing the u.s. borders." now, of course, there's still much more that authorities want to know about t
the process is under way. >> juliette, from a law enforcement standpoint, do you think it was the right decision to try him in civilian court? >> absolutely. like what jeff said, there is just really no debate about this. it's more of a political debate. for one, the law doesn't even cover him because he's a u.s. citizen. but from a law enforcement national security perspective, what better way to minimize the impact of terrorists than to treat them like criminals. that's what they are. if you make them into sort of a bigger deal than he is or anyone is, it sort of gives them a relevance we actually don't want to. so a lot of people in national security and counterterrorism love this idea. not only because of the legal underpinnings behind it but also because it sort of says to anyone who would harm us, you're just a criminal. >> there has also been a lot of successful prosecutions of terrorist suspects in criminal court. >> you can learn a lot of evidence from this. when i first got into this field it was right after the africa bombings, african embassy bombings in '98, and some of the
that everybody is out here helping. >> reporter: law enforcement officials tell nbc news they believe both bombs were hidden in the backpacks like this one on the street. discarded like personal property. they believe the bombs were triggered by a device, like a cell phone. killing three, like 8-year-old martin richard. the people on the streets hope they find the bomber. >> the worst thing, we couldn't find out who did it. that would just say they could get away with this. >> reporter: now people continue to walk around the perimeter, many snapping photos on their cell phones. and police want people who snapped photos yesterday during the race capturing images. if you notice anything suspicious they would like you to share that with the boston police department. live here in boston, i'm shomari stone. >>> all right, the flags are at half staff to honor the victims of the bombing. the flag will remain lowered until april 20th out of respect. and the president will go to boston on thursday, speaking at a service dedicated to those killed or gravely wounded in the bombings. earlier today, the pres
or possibly change the laws. what's expected here on the boston marathon bombing investigation when i see you next. kyla campbell, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. >>> the man accused of mailing a letter containing ricin to president obama is expected back in court. paul kevin curtis has denied any involvement sent to the president or other letters sent to a senator or judge. his attorneys say there's little evidence connecting him to the letters but curtis's family says he does suffer from mental illness. >>> we're hearing the frantic 911 calls made from a deadly explosion at a fert light ez -- fertilizer plant in west, texas. >> there's been an explosion at my house. all of the windows are completely in. >> at least 14 people were killed in last wednesday's explosion and 200 more were injured. ten of those killed were first responders. >> listen, to me. the station just totally exploded. i have a nursing home and an ammo station and i need as much help that you can sent. >> some were able to return home. howf, they have strict curfews and limited water -- however, they have strict curfews
. that's what we're doing here tonight. how the fbi and law enforcement are trying to figure out who's responsible, who and what and why in the terror in boston. this is "hardball," "the place for politics." [ male announcer ] you are a business pro. governor of getting it done. you know how to dance... with a deadline. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle... and go. you can even take a full-size or above, and still pay the mid-size price. this is awesome.

[ male announcer ] book ahead and save up to 20 percent at doubletree.com, so you can sit back, relax and enjoy. doubletree by hilton. where the little things mean everything. >>> let's take a look now at some of the front pages of this morning's newspapers. starting with "the boston globe" and the headline. marathon terror. terror at the finish line. the orange county register in california asked the question we all want answered, of course. who would do this? the irish examiner from ireland call
that person or persons to justice. and that's what law enforcement is focused on. the second thing, then, is to sort out how this could have happened. you know, we've had 116 years of incident-free marathons. and every year we have learned lessons from the one before. it's a terrible, terrible and bloody lesson we're having to learn this time. but i am also confident that we will learn what lessons there are to be learned, and next year's marathon will be bigger and better than ever. >> the governor of the commonwealth of massachusetts, deval patrick, thank you very much for being with us. we'll be back with more news from boston and elsewhere right after this. >>> we're back at the corner of the public garden here in boston. the next major marathon is this sunday in london. for that matter there's a major sporting event every day all year all around the world. and this raises questions about how to defend and secure those. tom costello is at the verizon center in washington where there's an nhl game tonight. the capitals playing the toronto maple leafs. tom, good evening. >> reporter: h
is in custody the last thing we should want for him is to remain silent. under the law of war we can hold this suspect as a potential enemy combatant not entitled to miranda warnings or the appointment of counsel." with us now from new york is paul callan, former new york prosecutor. what are police trying to find out from him at this point? >> i think we're trying to find out what things, first, are there other unexploded bombs out there that have to be recovered to protect the public and secondly they're going to want to know how did you get all of this explosive material? who sold it to you? where is the chain? are there others who may be involved in some kind of a broader conspiracy? those are the two areas that i think federal authorities would be exploring. >> obviously there are a lot of legal implications about this and a great deal of discussion about this. i want to you listen to what alan dershowitz said. >> the government made a mistake claiming the exception to miranda when the police said there's no public safety, it's solved, it's over, there are no further threats but the
. this image released from the fbi, joint bulletin issued to law enforcement. it shows the remains of a pressure cooker. the fbi says it's part of one of the detonated boks. it shows this image of an exploded backpack. the fbi is examining photos like this from nbc affiliate, whdh. it shows the marathon route before the second bomb detonated. here is a picture of the same location after the second bomb detonated. sources tell nbc news that the triggering mechanism appears to have had a battery pack and circuit board, elements of a sophisticated system. both elements were recovered at the scene. joining me now is congressman ed markey from massachusetts. one of the people killed, krystle campbell is from your district? >> yes, she is. that is a good indication this goes beyond the city of boston. >> it does. >> this is all of massachusetts. there are tens of thousands of runners but there's a million people watching the marathon. as a result, every single family knows someone who was here yesterday. this is a very special day each year for the whole state. krystle campbell from medf
will release that videotape in a court of law. they've described it in extensive detail. that's going to be powerful, powerful evidence in a potential trial. tom, thanks very much. let's recap quickly the surviving suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, now facing federal charges, among them use gd and conspiring to 0 use a weapon of mass destruction rulgting in death. let's bring in our senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin. jeffrey, what happens next? >> what happens next is that the case will be presented to a grand jury. prosecutors will begin presenting evidence, leading to an indictment. i think the process is going to slow down a great deal. remember, this crime was only a week ago. the government is going to have to assemble a lot of scientific evidence trying to tie material that could be connected to the defendant, to the bomb itself. this is complicated stuff. i think it's going to be months in the grand jury until a final indictment is ready to be presented probably. and then at that point the case will be presented to a trial judge, and there will be motions and then a trial. >> he no
, law enforcement officials are keeping a very close eye on the internet, specifically sites that show people how to make destructive devices. nbc's senior investigative correspondent lisa myers has that part of the story, good morning. >> matt, good morning to you. regardless of who committed this atrocity it's clear these days that anyone with a grievance and the will can learn how to become a terrorist simply by going online. now authorities are trying to use some of these sites to their advantage. the latest evidence bomb makers have taken their teachings to the web this online al qaeda publication posted last month, a guide to carrying out terror attacks including detailed illustrated recipes for pressure cooker bombs, the kind investigators say was used in boston. >> the internet has brought terrorism to the web. it's made it go viral. anybody can look online and find out how to make a bomb. it is a frightening development. >> a similar terrorist manual, how to make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom, was posted three years ago. prosecutors say it was used by this former muslim-am
hill later today, when law enforcement officials brief lawmakers. john? >> all right, barbara starr, thanks so much. barbara starr in washington. i want to bring back fran townsend, cnn analyst, former homeland security adviser to president george w. bush. and fran, i want to get your take here. where do you think the investigation stands right now? we've had these initial criminal complaints given dzhokhar tsarnaev. we've seen sort of the case laid out just a little bit. but how about the investigation itself? what are the next steps? >> well, first of all, we know from investigators that they're cooperating with the russians. i talked to sources, federal sources, and the cooperation between russian authorities and the fbi is quite good. both want to understand what they might have missed, what they should have seen, and what they should have made of it as this case is unfolding. you know, there are questions about the older brother tamerlan's travels to russia, what he did and who he met with. those are the sorts of questions that are following up. in the meantime, here in the uni
in the world will be looking to its intelligence and law enforcement agencies for any clue as to whether or not this has some foreign connection. >> secretary rice president obama in his statement yesterday said how little the government knows, how little he know we don't know who did this why it was planned or executed foreign or domestic. why say that? does the president know that people are listening to every word he said including those who might be responsible? >> of course. the president wants to reassure the american people that the government is on the trail so to speak and that justice will be done. the president has to be careful. he has to be sure that he has got as much information as he can about what is now a forensic effort to understand how this attack unfolded. so i am not surprised that very little has been said yet. this is obviously an act of terror. it was obviously an effort to maim as many individuals, and as many innocent citizens as possible. but the president has to be very careful, not to give out information prematurely here and it's entirel
deserve answers. >> reporter: answers that the full force of u.s. law enforcement and intelligence agencies are racing to learn. was there foreign help or training? older brother tamerlan spent six months overseas last year. he went to chechnya, areas where islamic extremists and violent chechen separatists are known to operate. >> he was away for six months. was that long enough to have done what? >> that's long enough to have done a lot of things. if you're motivated, have the connections, there's plenty of time there to be initiated into a group, receive training and potentially a lot of training. >> reporter: robert mcfadden is a former agent in the n.c.i.s., the naval criminal investigative service. his 30-plus years experience in counterterrorism includes work on the al qaeda bombing of the u.s.s. coal in 2000. >> something just blew up. reporter: mcfadden believes the number one priority of investigators is to be sure there are no accomplices still at large. >> are there other events coming? what other events are planned and doing everything possible to rule out that there c
what happened and to bring that person or persons to justice. and that's what law enforcement is focused on. the second thing, then, is to sort out how this could have happened. you know, we've had 116 years of incident-free marathons. and every year we have learned lessons from the one before. it's a terrible, terrible and bloody lesson we're having to learn this time. but i am also confident that we will learn what lessons there are to be learned, and next year's marathon will be bigger and better than ever. >> the governor of the commonwealth of massachusetts, deval patrick, thank you very much for being with us. we'll be back with more news from boston and elsewhere right after this. we went out and asked people a simple question: how old is the oldest person you've known? we gave people a sticker and had them show us. we learned a lot of us have known someone who's lived well into their 90s. and that's a great thing. but even though we're living longer, one thing that hasn't changed: the official retirement age. ♪ the question is how do you make sure you have the money
is doing and the law enforcement and so forth is doing is trying to take care of those people who are hurt and families of wounded and so forth. then we go into the investigate which really starts right from the beginning. and they've got to take their time and really do this the right way. examine everything and go through it like a fine toothed comb as we would say down here in texas. and make sure that they've got all of the details. because a case like this, you're not going to start this case overnight. and i know that we've become accustomed to, let's get it done right now. well, that's not going to make it in a case like this. because there may be overseas involvement here with people who may have been involved in this case. and they've got to go through all of those aspects. and it's best to take the time and get it right even if it takes a few years longer. >> mr. cavanaugh it seems to me because of modern technology and the fact everyone on earth seems to have a cell phone with them, camera with them, recording device, we're getting a jump perhaps. when you see a picture of a bag
of the things we have been talking about in the last day and a half in this investigation is how law enfo e enforcement officials will be looking for a bomb-making signature. some sign that shows where the bomb was put together and where they received their instructions. as you're looking at these pictures, are these the types of things that give you a sense of these signatures? >> quite reminiscent of some major cases i worked on while with ncis. using a device like this, almost always there are components left behind. the crime scene processing and technicians making the initial assessment and even chemical tests are being matched up at the national center, tdac at quantico, virginia. it will be confirmed whether the device flagrated or detonated which would indicate a higher explosive. all of these things produce leads for investigators to run down. >> john and i were talking during the commercial break going back to the olympic park bombings in 1996, the process investigators went through finding the nails that shot out of the bomb, tracing the nails back to the manufacturer and finding
that it was from law enforcement officials that it may have been from a failed suicide attempt. have we learned anything new specifically on that? >> reporter: we have spoken to the hospital about that, they will not give us any information. i spoke with a boston police chief yesterday, ed davis, and asked him specifically about that. he said he couldn't comment on it. but it is in his neck. it is keeping him from speaking. we know there was gunfire exchange and flash grenades that went off, which has caused dzhokhar tsarnaev to not be able to hear. he's lost part of his hearing. but he fell six to seven feet from the boat and there was lots of blood. with all the questioning and everything you're talking about going on in the hospital and that he's -- he has this wound, and he is under medication, i asked a former fbi agent who worked with group, i said, what kinds of questions are they asking him right now? he says, i would imagine they're asking him about his brother's trips, about the rhetoric, about the associates, about plans, other devices, ultimate plan, others involved, about his dad,
tonight that federal law enforcement source confirms that prosecutors are preparing search warrants. most likely to be executed tomorrow. a limited number in the boston area in their continuous search for evidence in this case. that suggests that there are at least some leads, but mr. deloria made clear the investigation is in its infancy, and the number of -- the search for suspects and motives remains wide open. >> leiter, what does this mean? i mean, is there anything here that's a breakthrough? the public clearly wants to see what happened and why, but at the same time, you don't want to rush and -- and bring in something or someone that you can't really get the evidence to back up. so is there any breakthrough at all in any of this? >> well, it's still relatively early, but i think there are two things that are really important. the type of bomb doesn't tell us all that much. lots of different groups have used this bomb. you can find out how to make a pressure cooker bomb on the internet. >> wait a minute. you can find out how to make this bomb on the internet. so we don't -- we can'
